In an effort to increase the effectiveness of the program
and to expose our youngsters to a more diverse populace,
we are searching for caring, passionate adults to volunteer
their time and talents.
Direct service with youth:
-Job Club Presentations(nurses, lawyers, accountants, etc.)

For all potential volunteers, there will be an interview
with the Community Education Coordinator. We are
very flexible as far as your volunteering schedule
(once a week, once every other week, etc.)
but out of concern for our youngsters,
volunteers should be willing to make
a long-term commitment.
